I think 3/3/10 had the best top to bottom setlist so far.

Others may disagree but that's why Baskin-Robbins has 31 flavors.

Box of Rain and Johnny B Goode missing from this one.

Entire show, but has some harpy shrewing away during Wharf Rat.

I agree on the 3-6-10 pick, especially the second set.
I enjoyed the Atlanta and Asheville shows I went to, but I'll admit to cherry picking from the rest. I'll listen to songs I know I like and decide if the recording and performance both add up to something I'd want to hear in the car more than twice before downloading.

The tour they just wrapped up that ended with phils Bday show was pretty damn good. Honestly, their all good to listen to, if you like the setlist, you'll probably like the show. But this is definitely a good show all around.

How about Radio City 2nd night, 2nd set? Worth listening to at high volumes.

I haven't listened to every song from every show yet but I've listened to a lot of it and saw a few live. These are some of the highlights for me:

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2009-12-11.rode-ntg1.iamhammered.103842.sbefail.flac16
Wallingford:
BIG Shakedown, China Cat>Eyes is phenomenal, Jam>Dark Star>Strawberry Fields>St Stephen>11. Need I say more?
http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-08.sps200.kopp.106041.flac16
Atlanta:
Scarlet>Jack Straw. Very nice Scarlet and this JS is HUGE, totally torn up.

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-10.sps200.kopp.105989.flac16
Charlotte:
Very good show. Good Crazy Fingers, a nice Foolish and then Come Together>Caution>New Potato Caboose>Nobody Girl>China Doll.

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-13.soundfield-sps200.dr-fob.fix-106134.106171.flac16
Patriot Center:
Cool show. Playin' opener and closer. The New Speedway set closer is sweet and then Help>Slip>Franks is hot and St Stephen>Revolution>11 is also.

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-14.mk4v.nbox.722.burke.106086.flac16
Cornell:
Unbroken Chain->Morning Dew. Not a huge Unbroken Chain fan generally, but they really nail it. For my money, Furthur's best improv jamming has come during this song.

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-17.dpa.4021.722.fob.stubbe.106172.flac24
Buffalo:
Alligator>Queen Jane Approximately is excellent. H2H>MS 1/2 Step>Get Back>He's Gone!

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-19.akg.gmb.106215.flac16
Amherst:
Cool jam between Bobby and Phil in Cassidy, sweet Casey Jones. A surfy Caution into a very spacey Dark Star.

http://www.archive.org/details/furthur2010-02-20.akg.suraci.106201.sbeok.flac16
Utica:
One of the best shows of the tour, for me. Other than GMLS the whole first set is awesome. Smoking Cumberland, massive Foolish Heart and sweet rendition of Dear Prudence. Satisfaction is a rocking set closer. China>Wheel>Rider has gigantic Phil bombs and Unbroken Chain is inspired. A real sweet Comes A Time too.

Best night of the tour. Second set simply speaks for itself.

Hi Dudley - Glad you have the initial Oakland run; I went to the first show. Funny, the track I listen to the most is the "Tuning Jam" which kind of sounds like a '72 jam segment to me.

The Phil B-Day show seems like a standout to me. I like Chris Robinson's vocals - he really brings out the full force of songs like Two Souls In Communion by erring on the side of intensity rather than erring on the side of a laid-back groove (which Furthur sometimes falls into).

While I don't have it in me to wade through all the Furthur shows, I wish a knowledgeable fan would come up with a BEST OF list, so that I could make a Furthur Frankenshow.
